How Putin or Xi Could Blow It All Up for Biden

GettyJoe Biden is on a roll. His approval rating is higher than his predecessor’s ever was. Almost three-quarters of Americans think he’s doing a good job handling the COVID pandemic. Sixty percent approve of his handling of the economy.So now is the time for him to start looking at what could go wrong, and turning his attention past our borders. It’s no coincidence that the one area where Biden’s ratings lag is at our southern border, where his efforts to fix the problems his predecessor exacerbated have hit problem after problem, all of them magnified by the knowledge of desperate immigrants that Donald Trump is gone.But that’s not the only place where the world is going to come knocking and, as Biden’s predecessors know, the results are often problematic. Barack Obama was elected to get us

After a long season where the closest fans got to letting their jeers hit the ears of Astros players was near their team bus, or outside a closed stadium, Houston haters in certain parts of the country will have the opportunity this season to let their disdain for the team known in person. Angels fans did not let this opportunity go to waste on Monday, with fans going quite far to remind the Astros of their involvement in one of the largest cheating scandal in modern baseball history.

Fans at Angel Stadium went as far as throwing trash cans onto the field during the home team’s game against Houston, in reference to how part of the Astros’ cheating involved banging trash cans to signal what kind of pitch was coming towards batters.

First came an inflatable trash can, which was oddly thrown when the Angels were

President Biden would support moving MLB All-Star Game out of Atlanta

In an interview on ESPN’s “SportsCenter” on Wednesday night, President Joe Biden said that he would “strongly support” moving the 2021 MLB All-Star Game out of Atlanta.

That was in response to a question about Major League Baseball Players Association executive director Tony Clark, who said last week that he “would look forward” to discussing moving the All-Star Game from Truist Park after the state of Georgia enacted a sweeping Republican-sponsored overhaul of state elections.

“I think today’s professional athletes are acting incredibly responsibly. I would strongly support them doing that,” Biden, a Democrat, said. “People look to them. They’re leaders. 

“Look what’s happened with the NBA, as well. Look what’s happened across the board. The very people who are victimized the most are the people who are the leaders in these various sports, and it’s just not right.”

OPINION:This time when fighting racism, the sports world failed

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid, considered by many to be frontrunner for the NBA MVP award, exited Friday’s game with an apparent left knee injury.

The injury appeared to occur as Embiid landed after a dunk, colliding with Washington Wizards guard Garrison Matthews in the paint and spinning into the air until his full body weight came down on his knee, which bent backwards.

Embiid remained down the court in obvious pain for a while. While a stretcher was wheeled out to take him off the court, he was eventually able to walk off the court under his own power, though with a noticeable limp.

The Sixers later announced the Embiid would not return to the game, while ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported the big man will undergo an MRI on what the team called a hyperextended left knee.
